Spontaneous, self-sufficient, and with a little spirit thrown in for good measure, that’s Stuart and Adelle Brown, founders of Deerness Distillery – Orkney’s first distillery for over 130 years. It is here that they produce the multi-award winning Sea Glass Gin, new Scuttled Gin and the Islands only distilled vodka. From their purpose-built distillery at the side of their home in Deerness, Orkney they launched their products Sea Glass Gin and Into the Wild Vodka – back in May 2017, after a year of construction and product development. The distillery boasts a beautiful shop as well as tours and tastings of their spirits. Plans are afoot for a café and extending their spirits with a small batch rum and small batch whisky. Deerness Distillery spirits are a must try if you’re looking for an exclusive premium gin or vodka, visit
